And the drama continues… hopefully after today it will be done. Atleast in regards to the electricity. Without going into too much detail the house/garage was not properly grounded out. Since that has been remedied things have been ok. They will be tweaking a few other things today (assuming it doesn’t rain) and then we will see where we stand. So the kids have to deal with the power going out one more time so things can get fixed. I am grateful Chris has the day off and can stay home with them.
I didn’t get much sleep last night. Despite being stressed I couldn’t sleep so I was awake until 1am. Amazingly the pups were awake too. Everyone is sleeping now though. I tried to sleep in but didn’t. I got home later than normal too because of the extra work closing at the courtesy counter. They are doing all kinds of things to keep their employees happy at work. I won $50 cash this week in a drawing. Last week (?) was a $40 gift card. I am hoping that I get Monday and Thursday off next week. Chris has taken them off to be with me. Monday was his suggestion but Thursday I have a meeting. I should know today.
I encountered a bit of an annoyance for class. What they did was have the next set of classes start on the day you finished. So working ahead only worked for the previous class. I am back to having to make sure I turn in my papers on time instead of being a week or more ahead. So Monday (or my next day off) I will try to get atleast a week ahead of things.
I worry that Stella is getting an ear infection. I notice that more and more she is shaking her head. That is usually a sign of an ear infection. Not to mention all the dirt that girl gets in her ears chasing that damn ball! I try to clean them out ever once in a while to keep the dirt from getting too deep into her ears but that is a losing battle.
I found a small frog sitting at one of our ponds yesterday. That made me feel good. I don’t think it is a peeper. I think it is still a baby. In regards to the gardens the tomatoes are going like crazy but none are ripening yet. We probably have about twenty growing on the one plant. The beans are still going well and the green pepper plant has atleast three peppers starting on it with the possibility of more buds. The memorial garden is going very well too. Some of the flowers are blooming so I have hopes for the food stuffs in with them. I will try to take some photos soon.
I had better wrap this up for today. Thank you everyone for your kind words and support! Thanks for reading and stay safe!
